Yahoo warns visitors off Internet Explorer

Mensagens Recomendadas

Ridelight    8

Yahoo's strained relationship with Microsoft is set to be tested further, with the company recommending visitors to its site use Firefox instead of Internet Explorer.

Microsoft has spent much of 2008 in a failed - and often vitriolic - attempt to buy Yahoo.

Now the internet firm is perhaps taking its revenge by urging visitors running Internet Explorer to defect to Firefox.

"Yahoo recommends upgrading to the new, safer, faster Firefox 3," a message at the top of the site reads.

Those who click through are invited to download the special Yahoo edition of Firefox, which (surprise, surprise) sets Yahoo as the browser's default search engine and ships with the Yahoo toolbar.

The Yahoo/Firefox alliance will likely chip away further at Internet Explorer's diminishing market share, which won't have been helped by the launch of Google Chrome this week.
